HISTORIC ST. AUGUSTINE PRESERVATION BOARD

DATE: September 28, 1988

TO: Valerie Bell, Marsha Chance, David Scott

FROM: Susan Parker

RE: Research for Mesa-Sanchez House

Attached are an inventory dated 1833 relating to the Lorings.
la-__~tCt-ehe- a photocopy of a Bill of Sale of goods to
Charles Loring dated 1830. The machine eliminated the bottom
part of the document which contains the signatures. There is
also a back side on which is continued the listing of items. The
document is in two pieces in the old St. Johns County Court files
now located at the St. Augustine Historical Society Library. It
could be reproduced for inclusion in the exhibit to be left lying
around on a desk or something similar.

* It appears that intrafamily litigation was common in this era
and that this is most likely a sham suit to protect the
defendant's property from creditors. Based on other documents,
there is no basis to believe that the Lorings, father and son,
were truly at odds with each other. R. Loring had "transferred"
this property to his 18-year old son Charles in 1830. This
appears to be a list or partial list of the items which may have
been used in the "hotel" the the Reuben Lorings opened in 1832,
located diagonally across from the Spanish Treasury building on
St. George Street. However, it does give us a list of the kinds
of things that the Lorings owned.
